National Catholic Youth Conference


"My companions and I were immediately overwhelmed by the sheer amount of Catholic teens that were present at the conference. Personally, I wondered whether I had made the right decision coming on this trip, as I felt very out of place surrounded by all of the screaming Catholic teens. My doubt did not last for long, though." - Autumn DeLong sharing her experience at the 2013 National Catholic Youth Conference (NCYC).

Her full experience can be found in the St. Benedict's Steward (2014-1Q) newsletter, page 5/6!

In 2013, St. Benedict Parish started a host family program, for parish members to reach out to Luther College Catholic Students to meet for coffee, head to their house for a home cooked meal, or attend mass together.
